I have read a few posts on this but I wanted some input on my own situation, before I go the garage and they suck me dry of all my money. People on here are usually so helpful, so I just want some insight before I go into the garage.
So I've recently had issues with my VW Beetle Automatic...
I'll try to get straight to the point.
My wife's 2005 NBC Turbo with only about 50K miles.
Took it to stealership - I KNOW I KNOW, tell my wife- last fall for spitting sputtering issues.

Loosing my mind here people! I have replaced all the spark plugs and the coils on my 2003 Beetle Turbo 1.8L at least 4 times, but the coils keep going out. I will replace one and it will work for like 30-45 days and then go out again, since I did not replace them all at the same time they go out...
Been searching around for a while, and cannot find how-to's on the Spark Plugs, Timing Belt, and Water Pump.
Have an over heating situation where the engine is not seized. Probable issues: Timing Belt, Water Pump, Head Gasket.
Will document the process and findings to update all about issues...
Spark Plug Gap Help
Hi I just got some new spark plugs and was wondering what to set the gap for. I have a 2001 New Beetle, 2.0 liter.
Nappa said to set them for .043
My boyfriend accidentally set them to .048
Is that a big enough difference to redo them?
Decided to do a tune up on the car. I went to autozone and got some plugs. They said they didn't have any plug wires. there computer wasn't even showing a part number.
I tried 2 other auto parts stores and the same thing.
No one offers a aftermarket replacement yet?
